Non-profit arts group FABUM is launching a new online platform that will feature personal interviews with visual artists called the Visual Arts Connection. The website, currently operating as a Google blog (http://visualartsconnection.blogspot.com), will also have an event calender for local galleries and exhibition spaces.
Artistic Director Jameson Freeman explains his feeling that visual artists aren't given the opportunity to reflect and share the process and inspirations behind their work often enough. "They can provide a narrative for their work during a gallery opening, or on the 'about' page of their website, but this will be an opportunity for them to be questioned by someone else, and therefore perhaps asked to think about their work - and themselves - a little differently," he says.
